Self-Climbing Autonomous Robotic Motion Platform Design

The current OTIS elevator development process is document-based, limiting their ability to effectively model their systems. Utilizing Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) principles, we sought to move the design process into a digital format. To achieve this, we are using SysML, a general purpose modeling software that allows analysis and verification of complex systems. In this digital modeling software, we were tasked with modeling a self-climbing elevator. Along with this model, a complete archival process was necessary to make development of future models faster and easier. Extensive research and understanding of current MBSE and SysML best practices were essential.
